Have you ever wanted to live in Medieval times? Here you go! This stunning Grade II Listed thatched-roof residence is for sale for £595,000 ($764,705 in US dollars).
It feels more cottage than manor house as its formal name suggests, but it is undoubtedly a historic gem in the Norfolk countryside. Norfolk is a county in East Anglia, England.
The hall is thought to date back to 1390 with later additions. 1390 folks! That’s when Chaucer was alive. That was beginning of the Ottoman Empire. That was during the Ming Dynasty. That’s when knitting was first invented for gosh sake (Google).
The property known as the Wealden Hall House has seen some history in her SIX centuries of existence.
The interior of the manor is truly stunning with a Great Hall with fully vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, and original doors.
1390 folks. This house is older than knitting.
The kitchen has been modernized with some great amenities but look at those heavy, low-hanging beams from the 14th century.
The sitting room (below) is accessed from the Great Hall and has a large “inglenook feature fireplace” with exposed brickwork.
The manor has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
Look at the upper level master:
The vaulted ceiling with original timbers dating back to the Ming Dynasty!
Look at one of the smaller bedrooms:
It’s either all or nothing with the ceiling heights in this house!
Look at this place folks…
You could actually own this Ottoman Empire era house. House Crazy Sarah is picking up her jaw from the floor now. This is in fact THE OLDEST house she has ever featured. Older than knitting!
Full listing details below:
Lovely old house, but it’s not quite older than knitting:
“The Historian Richard Rutt conservatively suggests that knitting originated in Egypt between 500 and 1200 A.D.”
The house is older than the knitting machine, though (1589 AD/CE) 🙂
